Kate Hackworthy | Veggie Desserts
Mini blender or immersion blender
12-hole muffin pan
or 1 cup/250g mango puree
(225g) all purpose flour (plain flour)
granulated white sugar
melted and cooled slightly
Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C and line a 12-hole muffin pan with paper cases.
Cut the mango flesh from the stone and peel, then puree the flesh with a hand held immersion blender (or chop finely).
Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Measure 1 cup of the mango puree (the rest can be used for something else) and add to a jug along with the eggs. Whisk well, then add to the dry ingredients with the melted butter and vanilla.
Beat for a minute or so to combine.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan ¾ full and bake for 15 minutes or until risen and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Do not overfill the muffin liners, as the batter could spill over. Fill them ⅔ of the way full. Use an ice cream scoop for best results and even sized muffins.
Let the muffins cool before serving as it gives the muffin time to sit at room temperature which makes it stay together better.
Make sure the melted butter is slightly cooled before adding to the mix to prevent it from cooking the eggs.
Do not overmix the batter. Overmixing all-purpose flour could cause the batter to become tough which doesn’t make a great muffin texture.
For some extra sweetness, stir in some vegan chocolate chips, dark chocolate, or white chocolate chips or chunks.
Add in some fresh berries for a mango berry muffin.
Mix the muffin batter with sweetened coconut for a tropical flavor.
Stir in some chopped walnuts, pecans, or cashews and stir some into the batter and sprinkle some on top before baking for flavor and crunch.
